STRONGSVILLE, Ohio, Feb. 11, 2021 – PPG (NYSE:PPG) today announced that Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) has approved the PPG Delfleet One® paint system for warranty and aftermarket repairs on its Freightliner® & Western Star® trucks.

As an integrated system of undercoats, topcoats and clearcoats, the PPG Delfleet One® paint system was especially developed to meet the color-matching and productivity needs of aftermarket users. It is a progressive paint system for the commercial transportation industry.

Covering the full commercial transportation color palette, the system offers volatile organic compound (VOC) ratings of 1.5 pounds per gallon for basecoat, direct gloss and matte finishes. Undercoats and clearcoats have VOC ratings as low as 1.4 pounds per gallon. As a result, the system can reduce VOC emissions by 57% compared to typical 3.5 VOC commercial paint systems, helping customers to meet regulatory requirements.

“We’re confident the PPG Delfleet One® paint system will ensure users achieve high-quality repairs on Freightliner and Western Star vehicles while also fostering a sustainable workplace due to the ultra-low VOC emissions,” said Scott Colvin, PPG brand manager, fleet segments, commercial coatings, U.S. and Canada. “We are pleased that Daimler Truck North America recognizes the system as a preferred paint line.”
